'Many People Will Die' — See All The Strong Reactions To The GOP Finally Passing Their Devastating Obamacare Replacement Bill

no title

Republicans were finally able to pass their replacement for the Affordable Care Act — apparently without even reading it!

The GOP-run House held their vote after several amendments were added to it but before the bill could be read or its Congressional Budget Office score could be determined — though the latest CBO score showed 24 million fewer insured by 2026, and word is all the changes just made it worse.

And it's already basically just a huge tax cut for the wealthiest 2% of Americans.

Republicans reportedly celebrated finally getting rid of Obamacare with a keg party. Meanwhile Democrats weren't laughing. Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida said:

"Make no mistake, many people will die as a result of this bill."

After the horrifying news, some are angry, many are despondent — others look to the fight ahead in the Senate (who reportedly WILL at least examine the GD bill)!

Donald Trump Blames The Democrats For Healthcare Bill Failure, Says He's Just Going To Watch Obamacare 'Explode' Now…

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikDonald TrumpHealthControversy

Donald Trump

Donald Trump wants you to know that the failed Affordable Care Act repeal is definitely, 100% NOT his fault.

While making his address shortly after the Republican healthcare bill was pulled before going to a vote, the 70-year-old blamed Democrats (namely leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer) for the major fail.

Hey Drumpster, we know you're not a huge legislature buff, but you don't need support from the Dems when you have the majority across the board… you just have to create something even your own people like!

Anyway, POTUS went on to say that now he's going to "move on" to other issues like tax reform while he waits around for Obamacare to "explode."

You can't claim to care so0o0o much about the American people, and then just say you're going to watch everything burn in flames! Being a leader doesn't work that way!

Let's be honest. We aren't going to read the text of the American Health Care Act. No one is. The thing is MASSIVE! It looks like a civics textbook started mainlining HGH (and turned into a real asshole).

So how can we be sure Donald Trump's replacement for Obamacare is terrible?? Well, for one, it's from Paul Ryan and the being-poor-is-a-sin-against-god singers.

Obamacare Vs. Trumpcare Has Become The Sickest Meme War On Twitter — See The Hilarious Comparisons!

Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaDonald TrumpTwitterHealthViral: News

no title

After months of Donald Trump shitting on Obamacare without any healthcare replacement of his own, Republican Congress leaders finally unveiled the health care plan we've been fearing waiting for.

The American Health Care Act, introduced on Monday, will replace many of the core elements of the Affordable Care Act and also end the requirement for individuals to have insurance.

These changes will make healthcare more affordable — for people who can already afford it — and will take millions of people off health insurance rolls.

According to Democratic (and some Republican) leaders, the new measure would severely hit the poor by pulling back the Obamacare expansion of the Medicaid health insurance program for lower income families.

Of course, Trump's administration couldn't be prouder of this new legislation, which still must win approval in the House and Senate before it gets to POTUS's tiny hands.

While the GOP's Obamacare replacement is certainly causing a debate amongst constitutes, the new measure also ignited a meme epidemic on Twitter!

Twitics were quick to compare the two care acts with an endless supply of memes — and let's just say they didn't make Trumpcare look too flattering.

Colbert on the other hand, decided to bring back "The Werd," a segment basically identical to his "The Word" bit on The Colbert Report, but with a slight letter change due to legal issues. It didn't take long for the comedian to dive in and SLAM our future POTUS for supporting the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, WITHOUT any replacement ready to go!

The end is nigh!

While the world has been distracted by Donald Trump's #GoldenShowerGate scandal and his absurd outbursts during his first press conference, the U.S. Senate has been busy trying to undo Obamacare!

On Wednesday night, the Senate voted 51-48 to instruct committees to start drafting legislation that would repeal President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act.

Wednesday's vote approves committees of both the House and Senate to draft repeal legislation by January 27. At that point, the branches of government need to approve the legislation before a repeal can go through.

It's widely known that Republicans have been seeking to repeal Obamacare — the thing that gave health coverage to 20 MILLION previously uninsured Americans — and it's possible the process could take months. But what's worse is Republicans don't even have a solid plan to replace the ACA!

As a result, many Americans with health problems took to Twitter in the last 24 hours to express their concerns over the insurance changes, and to show their support for the ACA, saying:
